A spacious and welcoming nursery in central Winchester

Our Nursery and Preschool in Winchester is set in a charming character building in the heart of Winchester and provides a happy and stimulating environment for 3 months to 5-year-olds.

Your little one will love our four inclusive, age-appropriate rooms where they can explore.

Outdoor Adventures

With our vegetable garden and allotment, there is so much to inspire. Your little ones will love our large tree house, sandpit and mud kitchen that are perfect for imaginative and messy play. Raised beds for gardening make it easy for little gardeners to enjoy participating in our Green Gardeners programme.

Outdoor play is always available with direct, free-flow access to the beautifully landscaped, all-weather garden area.

At Winchester Day Nursery and Preschool, your little one will be next door to the beautiful nature reserve of Winnal Moors which provides a wildlife haven, perfect for exploring wildflowers and rich meadows.

A 'Bright Beginning' for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's development and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

All-inclusive Care and Commitment

Our parents and Ofsted recognise our commitment to high-quality childcare, with Ofsted rating us 'Good' in their latest inspection.

Our onsite chef prepares fresh, hot and cold meals each day. Necessities such as snacks, wipes, nappies, creams and formula are also provided, so there's less to pack on those busy mornings.

Commuter Convenience

  • Convenient onsite parking and buggy park allow for a stress-free drop-off and pickup process.
  • Easy access from Junction 9 of the M3.
  • Our nursery is less than a ten-minute walk from Winchester train station.

Your Personal Tour

We look forward to welcoming you and your little one on a personal tour and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have.

Katie Greenless

I am extremely passionate about each child thriving to there full potential. I am committed to providing outstanding care , education and opportunities for all children in an inclusive and stimulating environment.

I started with Bright Horizons in January 2021. I hold a B.A Honors Degree in Early Childhood Studies (Level 6) qualification and Level 3 Special Education Needs Coordinator. Theses qualifications have supported and stimulated my interests around children and families with additional needs and the importance of a strong parent partnership.

Winchester Day Nursery and Preschool Deputy Manager

Georgina Greep

I have been working in a nursery setting for 8 years. I started as holiday cover whilst at college completing my Level 3 qualification. I have worked with lots of wonderful practitioners and children who have helped me develop my practice along the way and become the Deputy Manager. I am very fortunate to be working in a nursery setting, as I love nothing more than providing opportunities and watching children develop.

Candy Floss

Hi, my name is Candy Floss, I joined Bright Horizons in March 2010 as the ‘Super Safety Hero’ to help nursery children stay safe and manage risks. My role as a Health and Safety Super Hero is unique to Bright Horizons and I’m in every nursery, 365 days a year.

Back in 2010, I saw a job advert for a Zebra Super Safety Hero – I was very excited, applied and was invited for an interview with several other zebras. We were interviewed by all the children who then voted on which of us would be their Super Safety Hero. It was hoof biting but I was thrilled when they told me I was the most voted for by the children who all loved me because of my cape and bag. My bag is very special, if something fits inside, it’s a choking hazard. You might be wondering how I got my name. The children in our nurseries chose five names and voted for their favourite. I love it as it’s unique, I mean have you ever heard of a zebra called Candy Floss? Exactly!

Why Bright Horizons

The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
